Mumbai:Today the Builders Association of India (BAI) has asked for extraction of new amended Development Control Rules (DCR), citing that they discriminate against the suburbs with regard to redevelopment rules.
Anand Gupta Honorary Tresurer of BAI has said that “the amended DC rules will hamper and render any development work of smaller size plots impossible in view of the huge open space requirement.”
He added that, “this is contrary to the amenities provided for redevelopment in the island city, where these norms are not yet practically implemented.”
According to the senior officials of authority said that not only BAI wants to withdraw from new DCR but also the Mumbai District Co-operative Housing Societies Federation and Architects & Engineers had come out strongly against the new DC rules.
BAI also said that, civic body has framed severe safety requirements which will deter the redevelopment of cessed buildings.
